CLEARWATER, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – 21-year-old waitress and college student Alexandra Chaar cashed in on the top prize in Florida Lottery’s $1 Million Monopoly Scratch-Off Game all because she felt lucky.

According to the Florida lottery press release Chaar started buying lottery tickets becasue she had a hunch she would win. She said,”I kept going back to the same store to buy tickets.  The people who work there said their store had never had any big winners, but I just had this lucky feeling.”

That inner tip or hunch that Chaar felt has helped her bring home a lump sum of $700,000 after taxes.

According to the lottery news release Chaar has no plans on quitting her waitress job and will use the money to further to education at St. Pete College.

Just in case you’re feeling lucky too, Chaar bought her million dollar scratch off ticket at the Food Mart at 601 Mandalay Avenue in Clearwater Beach.

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
